Riding in Death Valley. (Photography by the author and Mike Callahan) The valley of death is a fascinating place—at least in my estimation. Having been there more than 40 times since my first visit in 1967, I’ve seen a lot of it. And during each visit I find something new to gawp at. Some people... Read more »

It’s a great ride!” With that suggestion from a total stranger at a gas station, I did. Lower Smith River Road, just north of Reedsport, Oregon,... Read more »

(Photography by Clement Salvadori and Kurt Grife) Adventures are good. They don’t have to be big adventures, like crossing the Sahara Desert or Panama’s Darien... Read more »

Mount St. Helens still looms large on the Cascade Range. Western Washington serves up miles of great two-lane roads. Huge mountains, dense forests and rugged seascapes provide vivid scenery while sweepers and twisties speak to sport-touring riders in the language of speed and motion. This route of roughly... Read more »

August 7, 2014

Although U.S 66 was officially de-certified in 1985, much effort has gone into maintaining the remnants of the National Old Trails Road; it is a great tourist draw. I always like intros where you get to ride the new model home. The new Aprilia Caponord 1200 ABS Travel Pack (Rider, July 2014) was introduced... Read more »
